Hurawalhi Maldives marks Yoga Day with sunset yoga session
Hurawalhi Maldives has celebrated International Yoga Day with a sunset yoga session.
To mark International Yoga Day, Hurawalhi hosted a sunset Hatha Flow Yoga session on Wednesday, which was led by Indian Yogi Rohit and assisted by Candice Wilson, Duniye Spa Group Training Manager and Hurawalhi’s in-house Yogini and Sound Healer.
It was followed by a Himalayan sound healing meditation session, which was also conducted by Candice.
According to the resort, both sessions were complimentary for all in-house guests.
Yoga is an ancient physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in India. The word ‘yoga’ derives from Sanskrit and means to join or to unite, symbolising the union of body and consciousness. Today, it is practiced in various forms around the world and continues to grow in popularity.
Proclaimed by the United Nations, the International Day of Yoga is marked on June 21 every year and aims to raise awareness worldwide of the many benefits of practicing yoga. The theme for the 2017 global celebration is ‘Yoga for Health’, which highlights the fact that yoga can contribute in a holistic way to achieving an equilibrium between mind and body.
Officially inaugurated in January, the five-star Hurawalhi is home to the largest undersea restaurant in the world, and offers 90 villas including 60 Ocean Villas and 30 Beach Villas for grown-ups who are seeking luxury and innovation. The villas are stylishly and beautifully conceived featuring soothing décor, sumptuous linens on king size beds, bleached wooden floors, and private terraces with panoramic views.
